Are you practicing the 7 habits of highly effective Google Plussers?
 
Are You Practicing the Seven Habits?

Last year I wrote about the behaviors and habits that I see some of most effective and influential Google+ users exhibiting. Do you remember them? (http://owl.li/tT7jU)

1. Post Thoughtful Content
2. Share Other People's Content
3. Engage Other People
4. Mention Other People
5. Promote Other People
6. Consistent Activity
7. Profile Completeness

Now that it's been a while, how are you doing with these techniques? Have they become habits or are you still working on incorporating some of them into your daily routine?

Let's take a moment to review their importance while, again, drawing on the wisdom of Dr. Covey:

“Start with the end in mind."

What are your goals and objectives for Google+? I've mentioned before that if you're just here for fun, don't pay any attention to the advice that I'm giving! These aren't rules for personal use. But if you're here at least partially to develop a business or personal brand, or to grow personally or professionally, those desires should play a role in determining how you use the platform.

“To change ourselves effectively, we first had to change our perceptions.”

And nowhere is this more true than on Google+, right? How many of you starting using the network expecting the same kind of experience you'd had on Facebook? Rather, this platform has developed a very different culture and micro-society that thrives on discussion and engagement and interaction. Effective Google Plussers have recognized the shift, not only in usage but in perception, and have embraced it.

“Habit is the intersection of knowledge (what to do), skill (how to do), and desire (want to do).”

So when we've determined our goals and come to a better understanding of both the nature and the benefits of the platform, we can begin to want to participate in a very passionate and informed way. And when we merge in Dr. Covey's 7th habit, "Sharpen the Saw” we can constantly be developing the skills and knowledge to make these kinds of behaviors habits.

Here, that means taking the time to read great posts, follow great people, and learn from them. Fortunately, that part is pretty easy. But it's a necessary first step! If you circle brilliant minds in your field of interest, your Google+ stream will be filled with wonderful commentary and ideas and information - the kind of material that begs to be shared. And as your interest and passion grows, you will be driven to jump into these discussions and mention these individuals you're forming relationships with and talk about them yourself.

These activities will become habits, and if done strategically, will ensure that your time spent on the platform is as effective and beneficial as possible.

To learn more about these habits, please review the original post: http://owl.li/tT7jU

And if you know others who are struggling with what to do on Google+ and how to really use it to benefit themselves or their business, won't you share this post with them?

I hope you have a fantastic weekend. Thanks for reading.

What an awesome purpose God had for this man. From being imprisoned for 20 years in his own country to becoming President of that very same country. Thank you, Nelson Mandela, for your strength, wisdom, and courage. We will be eternally grateful for your service to humanity.

RIP, your journey is finally over...you were most amazing!

Here’s to the New Year and another chance for us to get it right, to do it better; to fall and get back up again, to love and be loved, to be swept off our feet, to be left speechless, to reach our goals and realize our dreams . . . whatever they may be!

Introduction
I Love Real Estate and I Love Our Community.
I am an avid learner, Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Jazz Lover, Blogger and Technology Enthusiast.
 
I’ve been a successful Realtor here in Rancho Cucamonga for over 17 years. I’ve never prided myself as being #1 because I’ve always given that position to my Clients. I’ve never thought of my Real Estate profession as a job. I love what I do and strive to make sure that whatever I do reflects the experience and pride of a professional working at what they love. 
 

Over the years I have earned many accolades.  However, my professional designations, certifications and affiliations were all attained and maintained to better serve my clients and customers.
